unexpected to hear this simple greeting in italian uttered from the mouth of the new pope. italians have been buzzing about this evening. they love the familiarity about that and, of course, the fact that pope francis asked the people to pray for him and with him. they were moved clearly by other little gestures like him putting on his stole by himself and at one point grabbing the microphone. so, it was a very emotional evening for so many people out there on saint peter's square. and we're just getting word tonight, shep, we're getting reports from cardinal dollan that the new pope plans to visit the old pope, the pope emeritus benedict the benedict the xvith this thursday, shep. >> shepard: what does this mean according to the analysts of the future of the church, amy? >> well, it just means so many things. this announcement is so

4:31 pm
in st. peters square? >> it was an incredible scene. i was sitting next to some italians who actually were shocked. it was complete quiet until you actually went to the front of the line where there was a giant argentinian flag and family of seven that happened to be visiting and really wanted to be a part of what they thought history. so, you know, the argentinians there were happy. they everywhere exstatic. not only to see somebody representing their country but representing their values and representing latin, america. it wasn't just one country versus another. they were happy that they had one of their own up there. they had tears in their eyes. one woman told me that she found it incredible that the very first words he said were that he wanted the world and the argentinians to pray for him. it was just an emotional scene. dancing, and complete shock couldn't believe that they -- that bergoglio stepped out on the balcony.
4:32 pm
>> shepard: he wasn't high on anybody's list. i talked to one argentinian who said we didn't have any idea our guy would be here. was it your sense from talking to people that they felt it would bring their country together having him here? >> yes. he has had issues with bergoglio with what he has said against gay marriage and some of the issues there. it's their hope that the cardinal that is now pope will not only bring together the country but obviously bring in latin america. there is the sharpest divide between rich and poor in the world really in latin america and well, pope francis now is known to be a lot like, well, pope john paul ii in which he humbled somebody for the people and a lot of hope that he will bring his charisma and he will bring that sort of common ground how protestant churches and evangelical movement the kind of movement they are

younger. he is but a few years away from the age limit for a cardinal to even vote in the conclave. the cardinals didn't agree with some the vatican watcher who's said the church could use a younger leader. rome bureau chief for the internal world television network ewtn. what about this? >> it's an interesting question really. an observation like you saids a few years away from not even being able to vote for a new pope. you know, the cardinals all spent five days, six days in congregations. they knew before they even came to rome and met what they were looking for in their leader. any questions they had about a leader would have been answered in those convocations if it was health, if it was age or one's ability to have the energy to travel and so forth. so, i think those questions were all adequately answered as far as the cardinals were concerned. and they chose the man that they felt had the humility
4:43 pm
and all the other traits to lead the church at this time. >> shepard: when benedict was elected, largely because of age, i was told at the time, standing in this same place in 2005, the analysts said well he is a transitional pope because of his age. this man is two years younger. is he a transitional pope? >> >> i don't think that's what the intention of the cardinals who voted him as who elected him you want as the holly father. the only way we would have to answer that is to look down the road. and see how he is doing. you know, pope leo 13th was elected at the age of 78 and went on to reign for 15 years and died in 1903. so, and he was elected as a traditional pope. as a transitional pope. so who is to say? >> >> is the thinking now that it's kind of okay to retire when you want to? or do we go back to the more traditional you stay
4:44 pm
with this until the lord takes you home? >> i think that pope francis and his successors are going to view the papacy as a life-time job. however, there is that crack in the door, if you will, that pope benedict did establish by resigning, having the courage and humility to resign when he knew his resignation was for the good of the church and his staying on because of declining health and energy might not have been for the good of the church. that was upper most in his mind. so, again, i think we can only just wait to see about this pope's vigor and i know he is going into the papacy tonight intending it to be a lifetime job. >> shepard: joan lewis from ewtn. joan thanks so much. >> you are welcome. >> shepard: continuing coverage of the transition here in rome over the next few days and, of course,

live team fox coverage on tuesday of the inauguration. tonight, president obama made a rare stop on capitol hill to meet with g.o.p. leaders. tonight our time over here in rome. it was afternoon yours. the first in nearly two years as part of a new push to reach a deal on the budget. but both sides admit they are way apart when it comes to finding common ground. it was a 90 minute meeting. came as democrats gave us details of their budget proposal. the first budget they have submitted in four years by the way. it calls for closing loopholes to raise almost $1 trillion in new tax revenue. closing loopholes on the big corporations, in many cases don't even pay taxes. republicans are already blasting the plan. they support congressman paul ryan's budget proposal which seeks to balance a budget without any new taxes, only spending cuts. it also calls for repealing president obama's healthcare overhaul, something that democrats say, well, frankly, it can't happen. mike emanuel with the news live on capitol hill tonight. it was the democrat's turn.
4:46 pm
what did they say. >> the white house put out a statement concrete plan boost the economy and reduce deficits. today the chairman of the senate budget committee made her pitch. >> our budget reflects the pro-growth, pro-middle class agenda that the american people went to the polls of in support of in the last election. and i believe it is is a strong and responsible vision for building a foundation for growth and restoring the promise of american opportunity. >> though senator murray and white house like it not clear how senate democrats up for re-election 2014 will feel about voting on another 1 trillion-dollar tax increase. shep? >> shepard: we heard today from com ryan. he is contrasting the house g.o.p. budget with the senate plan. >> that's right. congressman paul ryan notes that his own plan would increase government spending each year but just not at the rate that we are doing currently. ryan also is particularly irritated with one aspect of the senate democrats'
4:47 pm
plan.>> we may not agree on how to balance the budget. but we ought to be able to agree on 00 need to balance the budget. a balanced budget is a reasonable goal. it's one that we should share. a balanced plan that never balances is not balanced. >> and while the senate democrats' plan does not balance, ryan says his plan, if enacted would balance by 2023. shep? >> shepard: ah, plans, mike emanuel from capitol hill. the president had a meeting in the white house situation room about the danger of cyber terror, a very real danger according to all in charge. officials say he sat down with the ceos of defense and technology companies to talk about what experts called the biggest threat to our nation. just last night we told you about a web site that claimed to have financial information from first lady michelle obama. the vice president joe biden other government officials. lots of celebrities. the white house will not confirm that: the white house confirms they are indeed investigating.
